Ascension presents Astralasia and Laughing Buddha

Every photographer seeks to find his or her own style. For my event photography its seams as if I have become obsessed with trying to shoot in ambient light.

I do keep experimenting with flash at club nights, but I need colour in my photographs and i cant stand blown out smiley faces against a black background.

The Ascension club night is especially challenging as the light levels vary from night to night, so I never know what I’m going to have to deal with.

Often the light levels are sufficient to be able to use my 24mmand 85mm f1.4 combo. This night was darker than usual and I found it rather challenging to get both  sharp and colourful shots.

I shot this night with a 50mm  f1.4 and 10.5 mm f2.8 fisheye.

I got mixed results but here is my selection from the evening.
